Oh daddio a day all about YOU!

Oh dad... I thought I would make a post all about YOU because I did one for mom on mothers day. I'll keep some of the same questions. But I thought I would mix it up a little bit just for you ;)

Alright, here we go

Describe how you are like your father:

oh man oh man. My mom said this to me once "you may look like me, but you act just like your father!" she wasn't implying it in a good way ;) I get my stubbornness from him. I like to joke around and laugh. I like to try new adventures, and tease people in a fun way. I like to fix things, sometimes. I'm not good at it like he is though.

Favorite funny story about us

Remember how I would always lay on the couch on my stomach and for some reason you thought that I was egging you on to spank me, when really I was just laying there minding my own business? Yeah,  I do. And I caught on so whenever you would walk by me I would hurry and flip over so you couldn't spank me? And the one time you were walking into the kitchen and I was watching you, and you had that look in your eye. Like you were up to something, and I KNEW what you were going to do so I turned over so you couldn't. And you just started snickering. Well you went into the kitchen so I knew it was safe and next thing I know, you are FLYING (and when I mean flying I literally mean flying) over the couch to spank me and then tried to crawl away like I wouldn't know what you did.

Sounds I associate with you

I had to put this one on here. So there are a few things. First, why is it always like 6 in the morning on a Saturday? But you would grab a pot and a spoon and start in the kitchen and then make your way down in our rooms banging the spoon on the pot yelling "I stole the pot, I stole the pot" AT 6 IN THE MORNING! ON A SATURDAY! I will never forget that. And then, also at 6 in the morning if you weren't doing the pot thing, you would be vacuuming. And you would come in our room to vacuum and if we dared tried to ignore you, you would take the hose of the vacuum and suction our faces!

If I could throw away anything of my dad's it would be his...
Ratty old work sweatpants. Man I keep telling him he needs new ones, I think he might've gotten new ones, but those old things, and all his old work shirts. There are so many holes in them I don't think they ever do their jobs ;)

How would you describe your dad in the morning?
Um... refer to question about sounds I associate with you. ;) He's so happy and nice in the morning, and he would say, having to deal with stupid people throughout the day is what puts him in the bad mood. I would chalk that up though that he works at the prison and encounters stupid people on the daily, and not because of his children. Although, his children can be equally stupid at times.

How would you describe your dad's taste in music?
Ha. I never know what way that man swings. He loves 90's country music. That's what I grew up on. And then there is 80's pop, and rock. And then we have modern music which he's into modern pop music. Or anything with a good beat. I would say he listens to some really good songs, to some seriously weird stuff. ;)

and last but not least

What do you wish you could tell your father?
Probably you are the best dad in the whole world. We may have butted heads when I was a kid because we are so much alike, but I love our relationship now and wouldn't trade it for anything. I love how we are like 2 pea's in a pod, and that I can ask you anything. If I need anything I know you're there. You make me so proud and I love spending time with you. You and mom are what I aspire to be when I'm an adult. I love you dad! Thanks for you being you!

Nights that make it all worth it

Last night was a bad night. It started going to dinner with my parents and Hailey being a total tornado, chucking food, and then proceeding to dump my entire glass full of water all over me, her, and Madeline. Everyone in the restaurant was laughing... I however, was not. I went home feeling defeated and like the worst mom ever. But the night didn't stop there. Hailey cried the whole way home, cried in the bath tub. And then finally went to sleep. And then Madeline decided it was her turn to cry... Zack got home, I went to bed and cried myself to sleep feeling like a failure.

The day looked like this:


But today was different. My girls listened, my girls were good. They were playing together so good. And I thought to myself "this makes everyday worth it. All the bad days are cancelled out because of this one good day" 

Parenting is hard. It's so freaking hard. If anyone tells you otherwise they are wrong. They say it's hard, but worth it. Why is it hard, well read the story above, but why is it worth it... well let me show you:

If you think parenting is going to be happy all the time and that your "children are never going to act like that." think again. Because children have a mind of their own and they will. But they grace you with those moments, those moments that make you go "oh my gosh I love them so much I could die" They melt your heart, pull at your heart strings. But in return, they also make you want to die of humiliation, pull your hair out, and cause you a heart attack.

My advice live for the moments, because they are worth it.

5 years. 5 YEARS!!!

You guys how is that we've been married for 5 years. And together for 8?! What the what? We've gone through a lot, A LOT, in the past 5 years. So lets take a look and see all the things we've done as well as how much we've changed over the years!

Engagements 2011 (we were just babies)

Wedding day 2012 

We went to Denver for an open house for all of Zack's family! We also went to a Rockies game (where I might be giving in to being a Rockies fan... maybe. Don't get your hopes up Bleyles!)

We've gotten lost in every single city in Utah we have visited. We are masters at getting lost! ;)

I joined choir for on last time when we were first married. This is after one of my performances.

First Christmas being married

First new years

I only post this picture because I ended up going to the ER that night, and we spent a lot of time in the ER and at doctors appointments while we tried to diagnose my endometriosis. 

Went and visited Zack's family in Colorado... man a lot of times! Maybe not a lot but felt like a lot! 

First baby! We announced in May 2013. 

We went to the Bahamas in July 2013.

Took many many trips to the cabin over the years

Became a family of 3!

many many many many camping trips. 

Spent so much time going on different adventures! like going to the mountains, to lagoon, to swimming heading up to Salt Lake. 

Became a family of 4!

Went back to school then stopped and then went back and graduated from UVU, and got into the bachelors program at SNHU!

whew! If you made it through all of that then you deserve a cookie! We've gone through so much in the last 5 years. Spent a lot of time building our marriage up and creating a safe place for each other. We aren't the same people when we got married. We've gone through mental illnesses, job losses, losing loved ones, losing friends, having children, family. We've gone through so much but yet we survive. We continually choose each other over everything else because we know in the end it's worth it. 

5 years is a long time, but eternity is even longer and I'm so glad I chose someone as amazing as you to go through all of this with!
